Thursday (Friday) Conversation - Dave Collum

A look back at 2018 and a look ahead into 2019.

52

It's with great pleasure that we introduce a new guest to TFMR, Dr. Dave Collum of Cornell University. Though Dave is professor of organic chemistry by day, he's also a terrific analyst and commentator regarding the global financial system. His annual "Year In Review" column is always a must read and thus it was a treat to make his acquaintance through this podcast.

If you missed Dave's most recent "Year In Review", you can review it now though this link: https://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/114635/2018-year-review We must warn you, though...It's lengthy and detailed so don't just rush through it. Carve out some time and give it your undivided attention. You won't be disappointed.

For this podcast, Dave and I primarily discussed three topics:

  • Dave's background and how/why he got interested in global monetary issues.
  • What were the two or three most important events of 2018?
  • Looking ahead, what will Year In Review 2019 look like?

I think you're going to really enjoy this podcast. Thanks again to Dave for being so generous with his time and I look forward to keeping in tough through the months ahead.

KL

When does KL announce earnings? From listening to Eric And Craig Friday talk, I believe a pop in price is likely? Thanks

A very interesting conversation

Involving asset stripping and money laundering and selling old mines and running away. Sounds like someone is digging deeply. I suggest starting around 6minutes for Gordons story of investigating the global mudbath;

I grain of salt videos like this but....
